The Poetry Trials Competition
CHALLENGE YOUR STUDENTS TO ENTER THEIR POEMS INTO THIS YEAR'S FANTASTIC COMPETITION!
Students can write their poem for The Poetry Trials in any style and on any theme. We've created an optional lesson plan that looks at the lipogram, a form of constrained writing, which will certainly test their writing skills! Can your students: persuade us to feel a certain way with their writing; make us understand their point of view; write passionately through verse?
The top 5 poets will be invited to turn their poem into a video and have the chance to win an awesome Apple prize bundle, which includes a MacBooks, Sports Watch and Beats by Dre headphones!
It's easy to take part! If you haven't received your competition pack yet, then order one online or download what you need to get involved. Sign up to our free weekly tip emails for fantastic writing ideas, which will help you utilise The Poetry Trials in your lessons!
